If you're going to be doing significant Hwy miles but want a bike that is
good off-road as well the TE610 would be right up your alley. The wide-ratio
six speed tranny makes the freeway riding a breeze. If you've got
money, the new Husaberg 570 looks pretty sweet and there's the KTM690 as
well. Jap big-bores are all five speeds.
